Free Pattern Friday

Moss stitch edging, eyelet rounds, and garter stitch bands create a fantastic (and fantastically simple to execute) mix of textures made all the more dynamic by shifting through the colorways in a gradient Mini Skein Pack as you go!
Pattern: Storm Clouds Cowl (it's free right now on Ravelry. I don't know if/when it will become a paid pattern)
Yarn: A mini skein kit from Frabjous Fibers

The sample is knit with Frabjous Fibers Queen of Hearts. We don't have these kits yet but you can use a Cheshire Cat Mini Skein kit.

The Queen of Hearts kits should be here in February and will retail somewhere between $60 and $65 - it will depend on the US exchange rate when the shipment arrives.

The Combo Packs of Mad Hatter look great. 

If you missed my post from earlier this week - this is Infinite Stripes (pattern free on Ravelry). One Combo pack will make the cowl.



This is the special Combo Pack that Frabjous Fibers put together for us.

There are more Combo Packs in the store and I hope to have them on the website next week.
Ambah O'Brien has a new pattern. I want/need this!! Purchase the pattern on Ravelry.
Introductory Offer: Enjoy 20% off Assana through midnight January 10, no code needed - just add to cart.

Fun to knit and a timeless addition to your wardrobe, Assana
provides a beautiful base for your favourite colour trio. Play
two colours against each other in the stripes section: a gradient, speckled yarn, semi-solid hand dyes - anything goes here; then complement with a bold or subtle choice of colour for the zig-zag lace section.

Worked side ways, on the bias, Assana includes both written and charted instructions for the lace section.
We are out of stock of the colours that Ambah used (a few boxes went out this afternoon) so I've made some alternate colourways. We should have the sample colours in February.

I can't share with you yet but I know that there will be new Splattershot colours coming from Lorna's Laces that will work great in the shawl.

I'm excited. This could be my plane knitting later this month.
